High Hazels Academy takes the safeguarding of children very seriously.

The safety and well-being of our children is our key responsibility. We have strict rules on recruitment of teachers and ensure that all adults that work with us are vetted through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). 

We teach our children about how to be safe in the community as well as online. If you have any concerns about the safety of any child, please speak to a member of staff who you feel comfortable with. Alternatively, if your concerns are about the use of digital media, you can report incidents to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre. 

Our Designated Safeguarding Leader is Mrs Shanaz Begum (Safeguarding Lead).
